The Fluid Metering PDS-100 Programmable Dispensing System is the solution for valveless electrolyte and slurry dispensing for battery manufacturing process applications requiring maintenance free, high precision fluid control. The system is designed for high accuracy, low volume dispensing of electrolytes, slurries, and metal forming lubricants used in the manufacture of AA, AAA, C, D, & Button Cell batteries. Internal pump components of the PDS-100 are made of chemically inert, sapphire-hard ceramics, making it good for dispensing corrosive KOH electrolytes, as well as viscous, abrasive slurries. The PDS-100 design integrates FMI's patented CeramPump valveless piston pump technology with precision stepper motor control and integral electronics, all housed in a rugged space-saving enclosure suitable for countertop or wall mounting. Intuitive programming is menu-driven and accomplished using easy access front-panel membrane switches. The dual channel configuration increases production output two fold at a fraction of the cost of two purchasing separate pumps. Furthermore, the dual channel version maintains full-featured independent pump control and footprint of the single channel version.
